      Luv the Mini’s … are they all house cars, or a mixture of house and guests cars.

      At Riverhampton we begin every event with a Mini race.  It’s a new (BWA) class that we all love here and everybody brings their own car.

      I can almost see Michael Caine(NOT Mark Wahlberg!!!) driving 1(however I would compromise with Charleze Theron) :>) What are the “rules” specs required?

      VM – Vintage Mini’s (Modified Class)
        Eligible Models: Scalextric 1959 and 1960’s Vintage Mini’s.  Inline with 14k slimline motor (Morris Mini’s, Mini Cooper’s);
        Stock – Body, Interior, Chassis, Glass, with modified slow slim Motor
        Minimum overall weight – 70gm
        Gear ratio  9 or 10 T pinion / 21 stock crown gear not to be tampered with

        Wheel track must be kept within the models body width, the wheels   must not be visible when viewing the car from above.  Typically 43.5mm wide at rear and 44.5mm wide at front.

       

      The rules will allow you to

      1) Replace stock 18k motor with 14k slimline is a must;
      2) replace rear wheels or front and rear or keep all stock and just add Dart tires to rear; **
      3) Replace axle and bushings;
      4) Replace guide, will require a B-Nova to strengthen what remains of the guide post which will have to be cut down to about 1mm thick original material to allow solid axle to pass over using a flat guide screw;

      ** if you replace your wheels, purchase Mini inserts from Dart for your new 13mm wheels.  Also, the stock front axles are stub axles which add some complexity if you are thinking of changing the front wheels-you will need to install a CG slot (formerly B-Nova) guide holder.  If you change your rear wheels you will likely have to change the axle and this will require removing the stock crown gear from the axle and installing it on your replacement axle.  At this point you should replace the bushings.

      Is replacing the guides a mandatory rule, or are stock guides okay?
